MotoE debut: top-ten for Ferrari, Savadori crashes out

The inaugural day of action at Sachsenring saw the first free practice sessions of the newly-born FIM MotoE World Cup and for Team Trentino Gresini was a bittersweet day.

Matteo Ferrari was very active on track (16 laps completed) and was among the fastest riders as the maiden session got underway before showing a great pace and logging a personal best of 1’29.496secs lap-time, which was competitive enough to place him within today’s top-10. The 11 still has some room for improvement on the second split, but he generally claimed a good feeling with the bike and the track.

On the other side of the pit-box, Lorenzo Savadori did not enjoy a positive day: the #32 experienced a high-side at turn one few minutes into the opening sessions, meaning he could only ride in the afternoon. Lorenzo got away with a painful leg, which did not allow him to be at his best in the afternoon, although he is confident to be back to full fitness tomorrow.

MotoE proceedings will resume tomorrow at 4pm for the single-lap E-Pole qualifying session, which gets underway at 4pm local time (GMT+2).
